Greetings, my lovely ODeckers. What have you been up to? How are you spending your weekend? What are you up to these coming fall and winter? Come talk! I have been weird and unfocussed, and absent. I might just start flooding you with articles and participations soon. Anyway, share your projects, talk about…
I guess i’m a bit behind the times because I missed out when I09 was talking about the newest developments in the Sleepy Hollow franchise.
Transformers: Age of Extinction is one of the greatest movies ever made and filled me with joy beyond my feeble abilities to describe.
I have many frustrations with binge shows and the overabundance of serialized shows on TV and Netflix. While many are good, I feel some get way too much credit and episodic shows.
When I started working on io9 in 2007, we didn’t have a name for the site yet. We hadn’t come up with any real plans for how we were going to cover science fiction, science and futurism. But there was already a central idea that the site was based around: That science fiction is for absolutely everybody who enjoys it.
In the last few years, we’ve seen a uptick in Black female main characters on popluar network and cable TV shows. Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, and of course Empire, are some of the the most poplular and highest rated shows on television in the last few years, which has in part paved the way for Black female…
For decades now, pop culture – especially geek culture – has been focused on the hero’s journey. Every epic needs an amazing “origin” that fits Joseph Campbell’s monomythic mold – only, no such mold exists, and the ideas weren’t even Joseph Campbell’s to begin with.
My biggest issue with the MCU is totally superficial.
Why does Disney feel the need to delay their animated films in Europe for so long? If you live in the UK, you’ll have to wait until the 24th of July to be able to see Inside Out legally. Most of Europe gets it around August time and if you live in Germany or Austria, you’ll have to wait until the 1st of October.
If you live outside North America and pre-ordered Street Fighter V because of being able to access the Beta, then you might want to reconsider because Capcom lied to you at E3.
Every time a popular movie, game or TV show comes out, there are going to be people who either didn’t like it or thought it was flawed. There shouldn’t be a problem with this as we can’t all like the same things and are all going to have our own personal opinions.
Recently, there has been a backlash on the idea of shows being longer than 13 episodes due to filler. The idea being that filler is wasteful and never contributes to anything. Personally, I find this and people who feel that shows should only be five seasons/series are awfully short sighted. No different to people who…
Super Villains, they're the foils of our heroes and are nearly always up to no good. But what if they were the protagonists of the film? Would you want to see a film starring villains?
As of this writing, there are 4 days until April Fool's Day and you know what, I really dislike the holiday. I've disliked it ever since I was a kid and I hate it now as an adult. This probably has to do with most of the people I knew growing up weren't funny and their attempts at jokes were pure awful.
It is often said that Tolkien had only finished 1/3 of his life's work before he died and looking through all his books and notes shows much truth to that. Virtually nothing was written about what happened in the east of Middle Earth during the events of Tolkien's work, though from what we do know, it indicates…
I love Science Fiction and Fantasy for many reasons, but one of them is that it makes the impossible, possible. I love seeing and imagining the creative architecture and worlds such as Gotham City from the Burton films:
With the western release of Dragon Ball Xenoverse, let us take a look back at the long history of Dragon Ball and rate all 29 sagas (basically story arcs) from the worse to best (which yes, includes anime filler sagas and Dragon Ball GT).
Yu-Gi-Oh was originally a manga that ran from 1996 to 2004 that was written by Kazuki Takahashi and published by Shonen Jump, the same company that released other manga like Dragon Ball, Death Note and One Piece. It is best known for its trading card game that has become popular worldwide as well as the second…
I have seen countless science fiction movies and documentaries about the future of humanity. None of them were as inspiring, beautiful, and realistic as this extraordinary short film by Erik Wernquist, narrated by Carl Sagan. Watch it and get ready for goosebumps.
